The course Fire Safety Design is taking the lectures outside the classroom, showing us how it works in practice. In the end anything can
burn. The relevant questions are the following. What heat and what time is
needed to set materials and objects on fire? In what way do flames and smoke
develop and spread?
Efectis is a major player in fire science and covers all fire safety expertise in testing and modelling, certification and inspection around the world. To always offer safer living environments, the Efectis teams expand their skills to include other safety domains such as structural integrity, pathology assessment of materials, components and systems, and life prediction and durability for new and old buildings, monuments and infrastructures.
In the laboratories of the Efectis Group a wide range of tests can be performed with burners, calorimeters, and smoke measuring instruments. Igniting all kinds of products in a specific way, for a specific time, can help to determine the fire performance of a product and its contribution to a starting fire. Ignitability, heat release, smoke development, and loss of weight can be discovered through testing. Efectis can provide this testing at competitive rates.
